This Victorian house with this wonderful tower houses Van Gali’s Cafe and Inn on St Andrew St in Fergus. Originally built as a grand family home by skilled carpenters John and ALexander Moffatt in 1880, it was beautifully restored in 2008 and won the Centre Wellington Heritage Award. This is the separate outside entrance to the two guestrooms.

  1. Oh, that is wonderful – I’ve never seen anything like it, with brick and wood combined so beautifully! I can see why it won an award 🙂
    Thanks so much for sharing with us!

  2. The brick facade adds to the massive feel of the home overall. Yet the Victorian detailing is more delicate, softening the staure a bit. Very attractive, and stands the test of time wonderfully!

  3. I like this style, with the bricks and those windows. looks a bit like a castle, it has a feeling of nobility about it that cannot be ignored.

  4. Love all the gingerbread trim. What a story these old houses could tell if those walls really could talk.
